About the ANTIblog
There are 500 million blogs, there is one true ANTIblog.
We developed the ANTIblog concept because we want change, and are fed up waiting for others to get around to it. Irish Buzz is a watershed, in the stream of which many will follow. It is the birth of a movement, founded on the ideas and principles laid down in The ANTIblog Manifesto:
The ANTIblog’s One Aim: Break the chains of the mundane.
The Primary Guideline for ANTIblogging: Employ constant awareness and reappraisal.
The Three Guiding Principles for a successful ANTIblog:
· Publish sharp, worthwhile content without unnecessary filler;
· Interweave topics with clear thinking, deep feeling and articulate wording;
· Provide elevating, fulfilling substance, not immense levels of branding.
The Three Liberties taken by the ANTIblogger:
· Drop detachment, write a human;
· Be serious without taking yourself or the world seriously, see the ludic fun of it all;
· Feel feelings and publish content for human consumption.
Flummoxing fixed frames
Similar to the literary anti-hero, the ANTIblog is born of the need to reject the fake, the unreal, turning away from plastic blogging intent on filling the world with blah. Because enough is enough. Being these incredible units called ‘humans’, we have the ability to think much broader than that, approach grand ideas on a conceptual level.
But in order to see, you must first be able to look at the world correctly. In one way or another, the creators of Irish Buzz have learned to look. We came equipped with the same components as any human, and are committed to encouraging humans to peer through the mire of blah.
Because if you just trust yourself, trust that human genius of yours, soon things don’t just flash before your eyes – you truly see them. Eventually, you see that each thing isn’t simply a singular, fixed entity but rather a tiny microdot in the great interconnected web of the place we all inhabit: the infinite.
Seeing the normal
The ANTIblog movement wants to help all of us see that the ‘normal’ can be truly extraordinary and fulfilling. With Irish Buzz, we’ve taken an accustomed subject matter, Irish food and drink, and ran with it. Exploring wherever it takes us, always looking to coax the infinite from the realm of the conventional. Because, in truth, life is never flat, simple or static.
It’s a food site. But it floats. And bites back.
Like morphing plasma, we started out settled, building up our solid mass. But then we twisted it, allowed it to ooze, inflated it and sent it up into the air. So that you, if you care to, can reach out, grasp, and join us in play.
An end to bile
We had to. We saw the endless pile of bile flooding you the moment you opened a web page. And we couldn’t take it anymore. We just couldn’t take any of it. The throwing everything in your face, the trite nonsense, the unceasing spew of wasteful jargon-filler. The flaunting of all that you are not but should, could, ought to be you. The “Hi, I’m Stacey watch me cook better than you, tell me how great my kids look” 55 TOP ways to KETO Cook Lettuce (You WON’T believe how wholesome goodness just tastes so wholesome!!!!).
Irish Buzz is just us trying to do our bit. The ANTIblog is our way of helping to turn the tide.
Sometimes leaders are born, but mostly they are made – they realize if they don’t do it, the dimwits surrounding them might try to.
